Dark cream earthenware, moulded in two halves, with an applied moulded handle, and decorated with manganese-brown oxide colour, and green, yellow and clear lead-glazes. Part of the base is unglazed, and there is an unglazed area on one side of the interior, possibly a finger mark. Height, whole, 6.6 cm, length, whole, 12.2 cm, circa 1755-1765. Rococo.
